MyPillow Products Dropped From Major Retailers Following CEO Mike Lindell’s Meeting With Trump
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, an ardent Trump supporter, said major retailers such as Bed, Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s have dropped his products.
Lindell told NBC’s Minneapolis affiliate station KARE that those companies, in addition to HEB Stores, Wayfair and Canada’s Today’s Shopping Choice channel, have dropped MyPillow following his meeting with Donald Trump.
Bed Bath & Beyond told The Hill the decision to drop MyPillow was part of a larger effort to “discontinue a number of underperforming items and brands.”
Lindell was photographed leaving a meeting with Trump at the White House on Friday, and zoomed-in images showed his notes mentioning “martial law if necessary” and the “Insurrection Act,” an 1806 law that allows the president to mobilize the military and National Guard troops in the event of insurrection.
White House officials told the New York Times that the meeting only lasted five to 10 minutes.
Lindell has faced widespread criticism for promoting baseless allegations of voter fraud — to the point that Dominion Voting Systems sent a letter to Lindell threatening him with legal action over his false claims that their company was somehow involved in an attempt to steal the election from Trump.
